Growing home: Young Slovenian couple lives in a 17 m2 house and grows their own food

After completing their studies in 2013, Robert Špiler and Tjaša Štruc, decided to build a little house on a forest clearing. In addition they established a food garden and at the age of 22  began to live their simple life, hand in hand with the Mother Nature.

As they write on their Facebook profile, they combine Tjaša’s academic knowledge (MA in Biology and Ecology) and Robert’s many years of practical work in the gardens throughout Slovenia.

Too good to be true?

Check out their inspiring Youtube video!

  • Pa, evo… jedino što mogu reći : Kapa dolje, svaka čast! Partner i ja smo već godinama u sferi arhitekture i gradnje i dobri smo u tome, čak jako dobri…ali ono što ste Vi shvatli nakon tjedan dana, mi smo shvatli nakon više godina, ali još nismo okrenuli stranicu…. A shvatli smo da je svaki oblik suviška stvari ujedno i korak prema otuđensti od svrhe, smisla i zadovoljstva…Vaša priča me podsjeća na priču o ribaru koji peca sa obale, pa mu dobronamjerni savjetnik kaže da kupi barku, pa će uloviti više.. zašto pita ribar? Zato što ćeš višak ribe prodati i zaraditi, pa ćeš nakon nekog vremena kupiti veću brodicu, pa ćeš još više ribe prodati i zaraditi…A što ću sa tim, pita ribar?…Pa onda ćeš na kraju imati cijelu ribarsku flotu, pa ćeš imati toliko novca da ćeš moći sjediti na obali, uživati i raditi sve ono što želiš! Pa to i sad radim, odgovori ribar! Eto to je i vaša priča koju ste jako brzo naučili, i ujedno to znanje primjenili u praksi. Ako bude prilike, bit će mi čast i zadovljstvo upoznati vas. Želim vam svako dobro….pozdrav iz Istre
